Whether you’re the next Katie Archibald or your bike hasn’t seen the light of day for several years, this ride is for you. Our volunteer tour guides will lead you at a leisurely pace along off road cycle paths (no hills, promised), stopping along the way to share some key events in women’s cycling history.

Women’s Heritage Bike Ride, Saturday 24th August, 11am to 1pm, Meet at La Pasionara, 16+

This gently-paced guided bike ride along cycle paths celebrates some of the pioneers of women’s cycling: athletes, Victorian trailblazers and peace campaigners alike. The ride will follow the National Cycling Route eastwards to Dalmarnock via Glasgow Green, looping back to end at GWL and a post-ride cup of tea.

If you don’t have your own bicycle Next Bikes are available to hire from Bridgton Cross for £1 per 30 minutes (£4 for the full ride). You can find out more about Next Bike hire here.

“Great pace, interesting stops and enjoyed learning about the East End.” – Bike ride participant
